RECIPE TIPS
SPEED IT UP

To make this even quicker, use Caesar dressing from a bottle and finish it off with a little shaved parmesan.

MAKE IT A SALAD

Cook 4 chicken breasts as above. Tear the leaves from 4 Little Gems and double the dressing. Toast 4 slices bread, rub with garlic, then cut into croûtons. Add a few anchovies, if you like, then toss everything together and serve.
